Are you attempting to remove just the corrupted files or the entire contents of this drive?

If you are attempting to delete all of the drive's contents, simply place the flash drive into the system's USB port and format the drive, this will erase everything that is on the drive.

If you are attempting to delete just a few files, simply delete those files in question.

Are you having trouble with doing what I suggested above? If so, please let us know this and I can recommend another way to wipe the drive clean.
